is it ok to masturbate with food or other objects?

dear heather,
Is it okay to use a frozen banana or any other foreign object while masturbating?

Masturbation is a normal part of the human experience and if you like penetration when you masturbate, there’s nothing wrong with that either. I’m not sure that a frozen banana is such a good idea, though, because you should avoid putting anything in your vagina that might break off or get lost inside, which a frozen banana might do as it melts.

Also, according to physician, Dr. Karen Rosewater, inserting fruit or other sweet things into the vagina may also encourage the overgrowth of yeast (more for the critters to feed on) and lead to a yeast infection.

It’s probably safer to use something specifically designed for this purpose, if you are old enough to buy it. Just make sure it’s clean, and that it has a flared base or handle, so that it can’t get lost inside.

take care,

    I wouldn’t do that.. But I’ve heard of people putting condoms on cumcumbers and bananas and doing it that way. I still wouldn’t try it, though.

    In my opinion, I would not masterbate with any food or other foreign objects.. Like Heather said, it could cause a higher risk of a yeast infection. Just be safe, and careful, whenever you masterbate, gURL!!
